I had a simple filling done 6 days ago. I got a local anaesthetic. 2 days ago i noticed one of my dimples is gone. Is this normal? Will it come back?

In brief: Unusual

It is possible that there is some residual swelling from the injection, if it was for an upper back tooth.
6 days is a bit long for this to last. I would go see your dentist to recheck this.
